PLEASE NOTE: The stamps are not valid for postage in mainland Britain unless the Royal Mail postage stamps are also applied. They were issued offshore and were only valid for delivery to the mainland Post Office, at which point the Royal Mail took responsibility for delivery. The postal rates for delivery to the mainland was double those of the UK, hence some of the higher value issues. The stamps are genuine, and listed in various stamp catalogues. They were issued primarily to support the boat services to the mainland and the community councils of the islands. They have also found popularity with visitors to the islands (who then use the postal service, e.g. for postcards) and stamp collectors worldwide. These particular stamps were also targeted at stamp collectors worldwide via a mail-order subscription series following a large marketing campaign. And for those needing a Geography lesson, St Martin's Island is in the third largest of the Scilly Isles. UK 1st CLASS P&P is 95p. Additional Lots are Post FREE. Airmail (Europe) is £1.75.
